The Scottish Drugs Forum neither certifies course participants as qualified, accredited nor competent in Motivational Interviewing. As a result of attending the course, participants may not represent themselves as either competent, accredited, qualified, or certified by SDF to provide Motivational Interviewing. Course attendance does signify that participants have undertaken learning and development in the basic concepts and method of Motivational Interviewing and have undertaken some practical experience in trying out this approach.
Reflective listening skills are a core component of motivational interviewing practice, so we ask that delegates to this course have received training in, and are practiced in, forming and demonstrating these skills. As a guide to skill level, the Enhancing Core Communication Skills course that we offer will bring delegates to the right level for this course. You can book onto the Enhancing Core Communication Skills if you are needing to develop, refresh or update reflective listening skills.
Motivational interviewing is a collaborative and empowering method which can effectively influence change. Motivational interviewing is an evidence-based method that has been evaluated in more than a thousand controlled clinical trials.
This introductory training aims to introduce the application of motivational interviewing skills and strategies to help people who present as ambivalent find and build their own motivation for change.
